THE CHAMPIONSHIP FIGHT
Outlook is That. Honors of Arsenal
N Club for Season Lie Between
These Two Players.
The second qualifying round for
the men's championship of Rock Is
land Arsenal Golf club was played yes
terday afternoon, completing the 3 6
holes. L. W. Mitchell turned in the
lowest score for the 36 holes with a
total of 157 strokes. His score for
the first 18 holes was 81 and for the
last 18 holes, 76. By missing a
6-foot putt on the last hole, he lost
a chance cf tying the low medal
score of 75, held by his brother, Ardo
Mitchell. His drive and approach
on the last hole were perfect, bring
ing the ball within six feet of the
hole. His putt rimmed the hole, but
was a little too speedy to go down.
W. D. Middleton of Davenport,
champion of the club in 1909, fin
ished second in the qualifying round
with a total of 163 strokes. Unless
some one of the 16 players in the
fight for the championship beside
Middleton and Mitchell play better
golf, the cup will again go to those
who have won it in previous years.
Those who follow the game at the
arsenal links pick Middleton and
Mitchell to fight it out on the last
day for the championship. J. D.
Cady of Moline .former champion, is
in the running, however, and may
surprise the golfers by again carry
ing off first honors.
Four Cup Contented For.
As has been the case in previous
years, four cups will be awarded this
year. The Class A cup for the cham
pionship will go to the winner
among the first 16 players. The runner-up
cup will go to the man who

the winner of the championship cup.
The next 16 players outside of the
championship play,, w ill contest for
the Class B cup and the last 16 of
the 4 8 to qualify will play for the

L. W. Mitchell, leader in the quali

He finished 4-4, bogey 3-4. Low score
is held by Ardo Mitchel at 75. Leon
finished 76, five under bogey.

Leon Mitchell came to the front for
Rock Island Tuesday. Question is,
will Moline be third at the finish.
What happened to E. C. Mueller af
ter making an 83, to come back the

wrong. Maybe he wanted all his bad
playing in one day.
Here is a record, no names men
tioned, but will give his initials: E. H.

balls in the punch bowl and after tak

made it in 29. Going some.
Caddies had a great day and soma
great scores anything from 100 up
to 150. One boy had to send back for
an extra pencil. He finished the round
in four hours.

to get a trial by Springfield. He re

a game and a few days later he hurt

upon by his fellow citizens to make
much of a showing.
Dubuque has seized upon the sale
of Red Faber to Pittsburg as a result
of the no-hit game against Davenport
as the occasion for a celebration. "Fa
ber day" will be observed when the
team' returns from the south and the
association officers hope a good boost
to the attendance will be given.

Peoria is sore over the award of
the national commission giving
Washington Pitcher Mercer, who
was sold to' Cleveland for $1,500.
The money, which has been paid
over, must be returned to Cleveland,
and in the present state of the Dis
tiller finances this is pretty tough.
Mercer was given to Washington be
cause that club was promised the
pick of the Peoria team in return for
the use of Pitcher Hovlik, who be
longs to the big leaguers, and the
commission held that under the cir
cumstances, any sale of players with
out the consent of Washington was
illegal. ' '

DOESN'T WANT HIM
Decatur Makes It Plain Kinsella
. Will Not Be Welcome With

HAVE ENOUGH OF THE SORT
Press Asserts That Baseball There ir
Future Must Be for Benefit
of the Public
Dick Kinsella's reported plan tc
take his team to Decatur next yea
does not meet with much encourage
ment from the press of that city. The
"The Illinois State Journal at Spring
field has suggested what has been
generally understood in Decatur, thai
Dick Kinsella has designs on this city
as the future location of his activities
It was felt at the time he announced
his decision to transfer the baseball
game here next Monday between the
Senators and Davenport, that some
thing of that sort might follow. In
fact his plans date further back than
that, for Kinsella offered to take half
the burden of the Northern Association
team at the time the club was on the
rocks before Messrs. Campbell and
Sanders took it early In the season.
Decatur tSot Consulted.
"But Dick Kinsella has not consult
ed as yet the peoplo whom he would
ask to support his team in Decatur.
Were he to go to the average fan with
his plan of opening up here next sea
son, he would probably not only spo;'
Lis welcome next Monday, but receive
a rebuff that would change his course
instanter. Asked the question, 'Would
n't Kinsella give us a good team?
the fans would say, 'Yes, ce rtainly, lie
has always give-n Springfield a fast
team. 'Well what is the objection?'
is the next query.
"And then it comes out. Everyone In
Decatur as a great majority do Ir
Springfield, feels that Kinsella la a
splendid baseball director for himself
He knows the game. He can recog
nize ability In a young player, and de
velop It. But to what end For hit
own caln. It does not matter how
much a player Is liked. The fans and
their wishes are never considered
where profit for the magnate is con
cerned. And what is baseball for? In
the Three-Eye league and practically
every league below the American as
sociation, the people as a whole rauut
be given the benefit of the game. As
soon as It becomes a money-makinp
machine for those in control, there Is
not enough interest left to hold up the
attendance, and the bottom is bouuJ tc
drop out. ,
